The 27-year-old hip hop star is simultaneously bringing out his third LP and a magazine this summer, his representative has confirmed.

Ocean's album was confirmed after he took to Tumblr to post a photo of himself looking down at two stacks of magazines, and hinted his record may be called 'Boys Don't Cry'.

The photo - which also appeared on his official website - was captioned: "I got two versions. I got twoooo versions. #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY (sic)"

According to Billboard, the 'Pyramids' singer collaborated with Hit-Boy, Rodney Jerkins, Happy Perez, Charlie Gambetta and Kevin Ristro on the album

Ocean's first full-length major label album, 'channel ORANGE', was released in July 2012 to critical acclaim, and earned him a Grammy award for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

In the three years since, Ocean has collaborated with Jay Z on 'Magna Carta Holy Grail' and Beyoncé on 'Superpower', as well as Brian Wilson on his 11th solo album, 'No Pier Pressure'. However, he was cut from the former Beach Boys star's record due to creative differences.

Wilson previously said: "Well, Frank Ocean didn't want to do the song. He wanted to do rap, so we cancelled him."
